MUMBAI: ZEEL is launching the fifth season of its film-related property ‘Classic Legends’ for the fifth season from 8 December. Hosted by the legendary lyricist-writer Javed Akhtar, the show will air every Saturday at 8 pm.

The fifth season of the show will air on Zee Anmol Cinema, Zee Bollywood and Zee Cinema HD. The earlier seasons were broadcast on Zee Classic, which was shut down recently.

The show will familiarise lovers of cinema with the lives and careers of stalwarts who have left an indelible footprint in the world of Indian films. Classic Legends Season 5 will take the viewers on a mesmerising journey and give them a glimpse into the lives of 26 Bollywood legends who have contributed to Indian Cinema.

Javed Akhtar will regale viewers with interesting stories about Hindi film legends through 13 episodes, each featuring 2 celebrities every Saturday.

An elated Javed Akhtar said, “My association with Zee began with the Season 1 of this iconic show and we have come a long way from there. It has been an absolute honour to be able to share the exemplary lives of Hindi Cinema legends. Hindi Cinema owes its grandeur to the matchless contribution of these entertainers and I am sure Season 5 will also charm the audience with lesser-known stories about them.”

Classic Legends began as a step towards creating awareness about the stalwarts of Hindi Cinema whose invaluable offerings continue to stand the test of time. The first four seasons, each of which delved deep into the enthralling lives of Bollywood luminaries, received a phenomenal response from people across age groups.

Talking about the new season, ZEEL business head – Hindi movie cluster Ruchir Tiwari said, “Classic Legends is a cinepedia that has documented stories that film lovers will cherish forever. Season 5 goes one step further to acquaint today’s generation with all-time favourite cinematic gems. All the seasons of Classic Legends were received extremely well by the audience and we received innumerable requests and recommendations from people all over India to pay homage to many more stalwarts. Classic Legends Season 5 will feature some of these luminaries. These stalwarts have laid the foundation of Indian Cinema and it is an absolute honour to have a legend himself steering the show. We are glad to have Javed Akhtar presenting the new season.”

This season of Classic Legends will showcase the lives of actors like Sridevi, Mumtaz, Omprakash, Amrish Puri, Jaya Bhaduri and Hema Malini amongst others. It will also include music directors SH Bihari, Khayyam, legendary playback singer Manna Dey, noted film-makers Basu Chatterjee, Prakash Mehra, and Amiya Chakraborty to name a few. Classic Legends Season 5 will commence with Javed Akhtar taking the viewers into the life of one of Bollywood’s most iconic Jodi Rishi Kapoor and the Late Sridevi.
